Three teenagers were arrested this week in connection with a Huntingtown home burglary, in which a safe with jewelry and about $10,000 in cash were stolen over the weekend.
Demontra Molesworth, 19, of Prince Frederick and two juveniles, ages 15 and 16 from California, Md., were arrested on Aug. 3 in connection with the burglary after police executed two warrants and allegedly found items that were stolen, police reported.
Tfc. Gill of the Maryland State Police Prince Frederick Barrack was called to a home on Hunting Creek Road in Huntingtown on July 31 at about 2 p.m. for a reported burglary. The victim arrived home to find a rear sliding glass door was broken and a safe that held about $10,000 in cash, jewelry, documents and veterinarian medication was stolen, a Prince Frederick Barrack press release states.
During Gill’s initial investigation, a suspect name was developed, and a suspicious vehicle seen in the area, a gold Jeep Cherokee with a broken headline and loud exhaust, was found to be linked to the suspect.
Tfc. Roy of the Calvert Investigative Team was called in to help, and on Aug. 2 Roy and Gill contacted one of the suspects and gathered information that led to the execution of two search warrants one at the Super 8 Motel in California, Md., and the second at a residence on Adelina Road in Prince Frederick, the release states.
Members of the CIT, Troopers Roy, Ewig and Greggs, along with Calvert County Sheriff’s Office deputies Fridman, Mudd, DeFelice, Fitzgerald, Rich and Cameron searched both places and allegedly found evidence including money, electronics, a safe and veterinarian medication. Police reported the stolen cash was used to buy clothing and electronics, which also were recovered.
Molesworth is charged with first-degree burglary, theft from $10,000 to $100,000 and malicious destruction of property worth more than $500, according to online judicial records. Names of the two juvenile and their charges are being withheld.
The investigation is continuing. Anyone with more information about this case is asked to contact Roy of the CIT at 410-535-1600, ext. 2597.
